GOP Gov. Nikki Haley: Unions Not Welcome In South Carolina, “We Don’t Want To Taint The Water”…
South Carolina is glad to have non-union jobs from BMW, Michelin and Boeing, but don’t expect any factories from Ford, General Motors, Chrysler or other companies with unionized work forces.
According to Gov. Nikki Haley, they’re not welcome.
Haley said Wednesday that she discourages companies from building new facilities in South Carolina if they are planning to bring a union with them.
“It’s not something we want to see happen,” she told The Greenville News following an appearance at an automotive conference in downtown Greenville.
“We discourage any companies that have unions from wanting to come to South Carolina because we don’t want to taint the water.”
Kudos to Haley for defending the rights of workers over union bosses. Then again, there’s really no way she could be expected to back unions, after her state dealt with that frivolous lawsuit from the National Labor Relations Board three years ago.
